What's New in Lake George
In April 2014, an electrical fire blazed through the kitchen at George's Restaurant, a beloved eatery on Route 9L in Lake George. The significant damage required the restaurant to close for the entire 2014 season, but just over one year later the George's crew is ecstatic to be re-opening tonight!!

Have you ever seen any of the signs posted around Lake George that say "Please Do Not Feed The Ducks - We Drink The Water" and wondered why you couldn't toss a few pieces of bread to the birds that are standing there waiting anxiously?

As it turns out, feeding the ducks is harmful to people, the lake, and the ducks themselves!
